Edgartown House Rental Photos and Description

House, 11 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 7 Baths, (Sleeps 23)

The Captain Morse House, at the corner of Morse and North Water streets, is one of Edgartown's finest homes. This exquisitely detailed home is perfect for your dream vineyard vacation.

The home features eleven bedrooms and seven baths on three floors, a formal living room and dining room, two family room/game rooms, and two new gourmet kitchens all tastefully decorated with period furnishings and artwork. The home has new central air-conditioning, heat and hot water systems and appliances.

Outside on the North Water side facing the water are two spacious porches with partial water views of Edgartown Harbor. There is a large dock at the end of Morse Street that you can walk out on. Our backyard is one of the most spacious and safe in town and features a bricked patio with seating for ten with a barbecue, croquet and an outdoor shower. There is off street parking for three to four cars. Current accommodations are for up to 23 people in 18 beds.

We are committed to doing whatever we can to make your stay in our family home on Martha's Vineyard a special one. We think that our house is the best in town and offers any visitor a truly unique and authentic island experience. Judging from our sellouts during our first two years on the market our guests agree.

You can see more detailed information on The Captain Morse House at our website.

I grew up in the home you are viewing and spent my summers there until I graduated from college. The home was purchased by my father the year I was born and was used by him and my mother until 2008.

Prior to managing this property I owned and ran Island Sports from 1974 until 2007 with my wife Nancy. I am now a Realtor in Southern Florida with Corcoran Group.

It is quite a home and I am proud to be able to share it with you.

Platt Johnson purchased this house in 1955

I suppose this is simply fate. Back in 1955 my parents purchased the Captain Morse House and I then spent every summer there until I moved to Newport Rhode Island in 1979. I continued to visit my parents each summer until they passed away. I now spend as much time as I can on island attending to the house and maintaining it. When it was built in 1840 it was perhaps the best home in Edgartown. Now movie stars and celebrities have built larger homes but non with the style and class of the Captain Morse House. Our guests aren't clients so much as they are friends assisting us in maintaining the property and keeping it in our family for future generations.

A perfect location. You are right up from the harbor and close to downtown without being in the crowds of summer visitors. I love walking down Morse Street to the boatyard each morning and evening to see what's happening on the waterfront and to talk to the boaters and fisherman.

The restaurants and shops are all an easy walk away but it is the waterfront that is the best part of living at the Captain Morse House. After all - it is a whaling Captain's home

This house was a perfect fit for our large family. The two kitchens was a fantastic bonus for the cooking we did while at Captain Morse House. The location was great for so many activities and the public transportation was easy to figure out. The house is so big we were able to stay out of each others space and not wake anyone too early. The front porch and backyard were two of our favorite places for lazy afternoons and happy hour. The care taker was easy to get ahold of and prompt to manage any needs we had while staying in the home.

My husband and I rented this home over the fourth of July for our extended family and had a wonderful time. What a beautiful place in a wonderful location. The parade went by the house and our kids loved it. We could see the fireworks from the house. We would recommend this home for family vacation anytime.

Owner's Response: The house is indeed perfect for the fourth. Thank you for your wonderful review.

The bride's family stayed in this home for the week berfore the wedding and it was perfect. We ranged in age from 7yrs. to 91yrs. old and had a wonderful time. The home was very roomy and had enough space that no one was bumping into each other and family members to were able to give the bride her space when needed. The bedrooms were all of good size and comfortable. The home was centerally located to all of the weeks wedding events and everyone was able to walk or bike all over and explore this side of the Island. We all were aware of the homes history which made our stay even more memorable and fun. The family members in the home were from Massachuttes, Minnesota, Florida, Illinois and Arizona and it was great to have time to reconnect and catch up on all things good. Thank you.
